BRL provided a photo booth that the guest and children loved. He had a variety of props and the kids had a ball. BRL also was our photographer and videographer for the day. The flexibility with the hours and chaotic events that happen with the party. BRL professionalism and calm demeanor helped soothe mommy stresses. They manage to keep the party alive with fun karaoke music and video feed through the flat screen television. I was glad I hired an amazing team to bless my sons 1st birthday party filled with amazing memories.

Alex and Arzouma were absolutely great! They were very professional and fun on the day of the wedding and captured exactly what we had requested. They traveled with us to downtown Buffalo and the other places we were going for photo shoots. (Our wedding was at Westwood Countryclub)everyone in the wedding party was comfortable with them being around and had a great experience..They understand how stressful weddings could be ,specially for the bride , so they were extremely accommodating. My guests were also impressed by their attention to every little detail at the wedding from the decoration to all the ceremonies. (we had some cultural settings and dances). Alex kept in touch with us after the wedding for the editing to make sure the final product is exactly as we wanted it . We were really satisfied and happy with the final video we received.. So was everyone else who saw the video...The higlight video was very elegant and romantic and they had picked the most flattering angles when shooting me (the bride ).These guys are real artists, know the business and are very nice people! We would definitely recommend them.

The entire day went so smoothly with RocFocus there. They came early to take shots of both us getting ready while traveling back & forth from location to location. When they weren't directing us into some really creative and beautiful shots, they were getting some really awesome candid pics unnoticed. I received a handful of compliments from guests on how professional they were! Within 6 weeks we had 900+ stunning pictures to enjoy! Leif and Kristen were also super flexible when scheduling our engagement photo session, and especially when we added the wedding video last minute!

Working with Maggie was great! She was very quick to respond to any questions I had, and she had a lot of great suggestions concerning time of day, location, and poses for our engagement session. Maggie put me and my fiancé right at ease, and we felt very comfortable throughout the session. Also, Maggie's husband used his drone to take some really cool videos and photos that were definitely a great bonus.

Nate is amazing at video production! Highly recommended! We're so happy we found him on Thumbtack. He was the perfect person to pick for filming and producing our company overview video about why ClinicTracker, a mental health and substance abuse EHR is different from the competition. He very efficiently helped us film our 2:10 video in about 3 hours from set up to finish. We loved the work he did with our logo making it animated during the outro of the video which we we're presently surprised to see. The sound effects and background music were both on point with the theme of the video and sounded great. He took care of our edits after we received the rough copy within hours to include brightening the video some and raising the call out up introducing the person speaking. The pricing was awesome, and we received more value than the cost of his service. We will certainly choose Nate again for future video services. Choose him and you won't go wrong, promise. What we loved most about working with Nate the most is that he was willing to do whatever it takes to ensure we were happy with the final product. You can watch the work he did for us here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtPtp_1NRGk Thanks again! Marc Bovenzi Digital Marketing Specialist www.ClinicTracker.com

We hired Joram Bierdeman Media to produce several promotional videos for our new event in 2015. With very little ideas on paper and a short conversation, Joram was not only able to give us everything we hoped for, he hit it out of the park. Our video had received thousands of views and helped to build our event. I have used Joram for several video productions over the years and each time he has exceeded my expectations! The most professional, artistic and creative filmmaker, producer, editor I have ever worked with. I will use no one other than Joram Bierdeman Media for any work needed!

Our company hired Mr. Kramer for a commercial we needed to make for a contest. There were a number of difficult shots and transitions that we were afraid would be too challenging to film in the way we hoped. Mr. Kramer's expertise and ideas immediately put us at ease. His input made things turn out better than we imagined, and we couldn't be happier with the finished product. Additionally it should be noted that Mr. Kramer (Nate, as he prefers to be called) was a pleasure to work with. He has a great sense of humor, listened to everything we had to say, and was never pushy despite the wealth of experience he has behind the camers. Our happiness with the commercial was always his top priority and we'd definitely hire him again. Highly recommended for anyone's video or photographic needs.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a videographer and what do they do?

A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

How do you choose a wedding videographer?

A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

What should you ask your wedding videographer before hiring?

Finding the perfect wedding videographer doesn’t have to be stressful. Asking a few key questions upfront will help you find the right fit for your big day. Before talking with wedding videographers, research their work online. Look at their websites, business profiles and social media, and see what their finished wedding videos look like. If the style fits what you’re envisioning, it’s time to reach out. During initial contact, make sure you get along with the person. This is important since they’ll be interacting with you and your guests.

Your first question should be about their availability; there’s no point in going further if they’re booked on your wedding day. Ask to see references if they’re not readily available online. Next, it’s time to talk about money. Ask how they determine rates or what kind of packages they offer. When you settle on a rate and the services you want, make sure to have a written contract that outlines everything, including cost, length of time they film, what post-production will include, and when you can expect to receive the edited project.

When do you pay your wedding videographer and wedding photographer?

Most wedding videographers and photographers require a set deposit when you hire them. Wedding season is a busy time and a deposit secures that vendor’s services for your wedding date. It also protects the vendor if the couple changes their mind at the last minute, and they can’t find a new booking and lose work for the day. The deposit may be anywhere from 20 percent to  50 percent of the agreed-upon total price. Always get a written confirmation that your deposit has been received.

The remainder of the wedding videography and photography bill may be due in the week before to your wedding or on the day of the wedding. Other vendors may require a second payment immediately before the wedding and a third and final payment after the wedding video or photos are delivered. Each vendor has their own policies, so before hiring be sure to read, understand and agree to payment protocols. There is no requirement for tipping wedding videographers or photographers, but if you do want to tip them, the end of the reception is the appropriate time. 

How much is videography for a wedding?

Wedding videography is one thing many couples regret not paying for. It may seem like just another expense during wedding planning, but it’s really special to have a moving memory of your big day. The national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. Pricing can vary depending on wedding length, special film features, the amount of editing required, and how many videographers are needed to cover the event. Many videographers offer packages that provide different levels of service. A very simple wedding documentary could be $600 or more, while a full-scale cinematic experience involving multiple videographers could be $2,500 or more. Here’s an example of average package pricing:

  • Package 1: $1,400
    • Footage during and after the ceremony, including highlights requested by the couple.
    • Two cameras with audio equipment.
    • DVD including a 3- or 4-minute edit to a song of the couple’s choice and a 45- to 50-minute raw edit covering the entire event.
    • Recordings of guests’ good wishes to the couple.
  • Package 2: $1,800
    • Includes everything from Package 1, plus an additional videographer (2 total) and aerial videography.
